from washington, d.c. tonight's lead, new documents in the chris christie bridge scandal revealed. we're learning more about the actions of key christie aides and allies before, during, and after the lane closings. the information comes from david wildstein. the former bridge official who carried out the lane closings. he's the one who replied "got it" to that now infamous e-mail, "time for some traffic problems in ft. lee." that exchange came to light as part of subpoenaed documents. but a big question has been why did wildstein cross out some material? today the big news. many of those redactions have been revealed, exposing christie aides joking about abusing power. and we have names to go with statements that had been anonymous. a notorious example was the response by an unnamed person to complaints from the ft. lee mayor about children who couldn't get to school. quote, is it wrong that i'm smiling? someone wrote, before adding i feel badly about the kids, i guess. today we learned those comments came from bridget kelly, who is christie's deputy chief of staff and sent the "time
